David’s best gift ever

David lost his job, his family and his home due to complex mental health issues. His Best Gift Ever this Christmas would be to reconnect with his family.

David used to be an IT systems engineer with a family and a home. When he came to Evolve he had lost everything. With our support David is now managing his mental health and is ready to return to work.

Evolve provide people like David with accommodation and expert support managing mental health and wellbeing. With donations like yours, we can continue to help people like David regain their lives and move on into independence.

With your donations we can continue to provide services such as our Health + Wellbeing and Work + Learning programmes to help other homeless people like David to regain their lives and move on into independence. Your donations are vital in filling the gap between government funding and providing a full holistic service to help enable people to break out of the cycle of homelessness and become independent.

Donating via JustGiving means we can also claim the GiftAid for your donation, or if you would like to buy a homeless person a Christmas gift, please visit here for gift ideas.
